Modular Neural Network Learning Using Fuzzy Temporal Database

  • Hazra Imran
  • Shadab Alam Siddiqui


Despite the availability of several well-known neural network learning algorithms, we have taken the initiative to propose a new mechanism for initial learning and training of a neural network. Our methodology uses fuzzy temporal database as a storehouse of information that would be used to feed the network for learning and perfecting itself.
